WHO Employment

WHO is moving to a new and improved employment site!

From 6 February 2017, WHO will be moving to a new recruitment site called ‘Stellis’ and will no longer use the ‘e-Recruitment’ portal.

To ensure a smooth transition, from 16 January 2017, no new vacancies will be posted on e-Recruitment. However, any vacancies being processed in the current system will continue. Your personal history form (PHF) will still be available until the end of February 2017.

To apply for future vacancies on Stellis, you will be asked to register at the new site and recreate your profile. We therefore strongly recommend that you download and save all of your current information in e-Recruitment. This will help you populate your new profile any time after the launch of the new site.

Please come again on 6 February 2017 when a direct link to Stellis will be available.


At WHO we are passionate about the work we do, striving towards the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health.

We invite you to explore the many opportunities and benefits of working with us. Click on the photographs below to find out more.

If you are unable to complete our online application form due to a disability, please send an e-mail to erecruit@who.int.

Candidates appointed to an international fixed-term position with WHO are subject to mobility and may be assigned to any activity or duty station of the Organization throughout the world. Please find the link to the mobility policy below.

WHO produced reports on a range of critical health issues and provided new advice to help countries improve their people's health.
